I don't know about 2.15. All I know is that anything more recent than 2.9.5
that I tried (including 22.214.171.124.10 and 126.96.36.199.7) caused this problem.
Someone posted a workaround (preprocess final image with a script). Still have
to dive into the m68kboot sources to find out why exactly it fails...

when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
